Tales from Kars

Tales from Kars (Turkey)


Omnibus of five short films that were shot in the Turkish province of Kars, on the border with Armenia. Among the five directors are three debutants who were chosen to film their stories after winning a scenario contest. The final result is a sympathetic collection of films that remain small and simple: the puppy love between a boy and a girl on their winter trip to school, the memories of a young woman about her mother's response to her first menstruation, and the story of a student who returns to his village, but all too soon flees again for the past that is waiting for him there...
